The first edition of the Hackathon as part of the “Textiles Tomorrow and the Circular Economy” week organised by Techtera, CIRIDD, UNITEX and the Text’in campus, with the support of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, the Lyon Metropolis and OPCO2i, has allowed two projects to be identified.
“Laise Associés”: an online organisation to put textile firms in touch with each other and allow them to pool their production resources for the same overall widths.
Sustainable, responsible and local swim shorts: shorts made from recycled yarns from industrial waste, using an eco-responsible manufacturing process called “mass tint”.
The students were delighted to participate in this sustainable economy challenge. One hundred percent were in favour of renewing the Hackathon next year: a very positive result for this first edition.
